This looks damn nice. Finally a Western sidescroller with a cool main sprite.

Soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck


Q4 2017.

Might get it day 1 if it's not too expensive. Wish I knew the release date. Can't wait to see it with scanlines.

Spoke too soon lol: http://www.asylumsquare.com/#blog/2017- ... vised.html

I hate the new sprite. Looks like a refugee in a Halloween costume now. Sent him an email about it:

I wrote:Please change the Tiny Thor sprite before it's too late!

Hello! My name is Alex Kierkegaard and I run the best videogame site in the world (http://culture.vg/)!!! PLEASE PLEASE change the Tiny Thor sprite, either back to what it was, or to something that doesn't look like a refugee in a Halloween costume! You've put too much work into this to bury it with such a bad decision! Hopefully all the exclamation marks will have convinced you to avert this tragedy before it is too late! Or at the very least add an option to play with the old sprite! Or some way for the player to mod it in!

Thank you! Will be playing your game day 1 if it's not too expensive and reviewing it for my site! (Or better yet you could send me a key :)

All the best!

A game about a hammer-wielding character named "Thor" that has him bouncing around as if he's Sonic...

Completely killed the atmosphere with a single dumbass decision that no proper game director would ever make. But of course he's not a proper game director: he is just a hobbyist dude with very limited aesthetic sense and next to no artistic vision. And hence we get Thor bouncing around like Sonic.
